ORCAM - Blind can read too.!!



ORCAM:



The technology that was developed mainly with the aim – to help to help the visually impaired and blind regain the functionalities that were lost.

Yeah. So now even visually impaired guys can get to know even the smallest written things just by pointing towards them, like the reading the book.

Yes. Even those who are completely blind, can even read a book using ORCAM. SO what actually is ORCAM.?????

A visual system with human like performance to help visually impaired people

Here is a look towards ORCAM-See for yourself

It is a simple device with a camera and earphone  that fits in the simple glasses  and uses the Text-to-speech technology to read the objects and sends the user in the voice format with the help of the earphone.


The  OrCam device is able to identify thousands of objects, including the faces of loved ones, dogs, buses, newspaper text and store signs, all with the point of the finger. Its voice system transmits the information to the wearer’s ear.

So lets see a video to see how it works.




Amazed..!! Yeah with technology now, everything is possible.
And the most important feature of ORCAM, is that partially blind or even completely blind people can read the books without any help.

You must have heard people talking, that guy is blind, so he cant read a book.

But now, that guy is blind, so he cant read a book.
With ORCAM, even if you are blind, you can read a book.

Who would have thought that 5 or 10 years ago,.!!!

And the main thing about ORCAM that it is very easy to use. It is designed in such a  reliable, sturdy and straightforward tool for navigating everyday life.

Anyone can learn how to use ORCAM in just a single minute.

"No existing system can detect this huge amount of objects and do it on a small platform" says Yoni Wexler.

ORCAM have stored information about many objects and it can also learn to recognize more and more objects. Also, currently it reads English Only, but definitely in future it will read many more languages too..

So that;s it. Hope you all this new amazing technology.

Have a nice day.

What is MonGoDB??

Share on Google Plus Now a Days, we are hearing a lot about MongoDB.

So, in this post I will try to briefly introduce to MongoDB.

MonGoDB is "Non-Relational, JSON, Document Store".

Explaining in detail,

Non-Relational, --> The DB we use most like SQl, Oracle are Relational DBs(RDBMS). They do have the fixed schemas, lots of tables. So Non-relational in nothing like that.

JSON : (JavaScript Object Notation) : It is basically a document with information in the form of key value pair.

for example,

{
   name:"lorem",
   address:"ipsum
}

thats it. 
A simple JSON document where name and address are key
and "lorem" and "ipsum" are corresponding values.

So, MongoDB is the Non Relational database which stores information using DOCUMENT and that document is a JSON document.

MongoDB stores collections of documents.
(Consider the above exxample as collection  "Person"  with a document)(will elaborate it later more)


Need of MongoDB:
The Databases we use…

TCP Chat Server in Node.js

d.Hello all.

Today in this post, I am going to explain about how to use a "net" module in node.js and build a basic chat server.(i.e a TCP chat server)

For this, you need to use either telnet / netcat(nc).(I have tried it on netcat, simply google "netcat download")
(Dont worry about the script for now, i will upload it, just go through the tutorial to understand the concept)

So, lets begin,

first of all to use node "net" module , we need to import it in out script.

var net = require("net")

This will import the net module. Now moving ahead, we need to create a server. This is done by createServer  function(on simply Server function).

var server = net.createServer()

createServer has a callback whenever a client connects to a server.

i.e
var server = net.createServer(function(socket){

});

The code inside the createServer() function is callback(Hope you have know about the callbacks / event driven programming). This gets called whenever, a client gets c…
